  • "An exceptional holiday “cottage”."

    I had always wondered what living in a converted church would be like - this has been so imaginatively and wonderfully converted with such attention to detail and is so beautiful I cannot believe it can be bettered. I highly recommend this property and the only negative feedback I can give is to say how much we all regretted having to leave at the end of the week! ❤️

  • "The chapel house is a truly stunning place -cosy, comfortable, warm yet light and airy."

    Great grown up party venue. Only complaint is the parking space - tight space for two cars.

  • "A beautiful property."

    The large window above the stairs was very impressive. The log burner really heated the chapel up on an autumn evening and made the place very cosy. Shame the chapel didn’t have a coffee machine which you would expect in a luxury property. The parking for two cars was too tight. You wouldn’t fit two family cars in and be able to alight your vehicle. Getting in and out of the parking spaces onto the lane was arduous.

  • "The Chapel House is truly amazing."

    We enjoyed such a brilliant, relaxing week in this superb home. The chapel features are beautiful, the decor sumptuous, with remarkable attention to detail showing artistic and, at times, fun and quirky style. It couldn’t be improved. Our host, Sarah, was also so welcoming and accommodating and the house was so well equipped with everything we needed. The Isle of Wight is great too, with so much to see and do, and beautiful countryside and coastlines. Highly recommended for an outstandingly perfect stay.

  • "We were given a warm welcome by Sarah who showed us around and explained the workings of everything and had supplied a delicious welcome pack."

    Chapel House is a brilliant place to stay - plenty of space and very comfortable. It is also in a quiet village with most places of interest within a short distance. We would certainly recommend it as a holiday destination.

  • "I expected a stay in a converted chapel to be quite special and it certainly was."

    I think we all said “wow” when we walked in! Original features remained, stained glass windows, stone arches, organ pipes to name a few, yet the kitchen, bathrooms and the overall feel were modern. Lots of space but it was cosy too. It was spotless, beautifully decorated and furnished. Sarah, showed us round and explained all the ‘tech’ and left a lovely welcome basket of goodies. Lovely situation close to footpaths and not far from the sea. A fabulous week that will definitely be repeated in Chapel House.

  • "We have stayed at Chapel House before and even with the new restrictions in place - sarah made us feel incredibly welcome and the place was incredibly clean and tidy."

    The house is beautiful. The area is lovely and all in all we had a wonderful time. The only reason that i am unsure whether i would book again is not because of the house but the way that Sykes initially handled the pandemic. So i am not confident that they are the best company to book through - first refused refunds / date change, then refused refunds and only allowed certain date changes which cost people more, then refused a refund if you had changed your date. This was only after excessive pressure from Martin Lewis and the government. So Sykes you get 5/10. Sarah and Chapel house get 100/10 because the property itself is honestly amazing.

About the location


Ventnor 6.5 miles; Newport 9.5 miles; Yarmouth 13.5 miles; Fishbourne 14.2 miles; Cowes 14.5 miles.

Ideal for those seeking a mix of coast and country, Chale is a picturesque farming village, nestled at the foot of St Catherine’s Down on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The village itself offers an award-winning pub/restaurant with an excellent children’s play area, and breathtaking coastal and downland walks, especially to the 35ft-tall octagonal tower ‘St Catherine's Oratory’, locally known as the Pepper Pot. This medieval lighthouse was built in 1312 and is believed to be one of the oldest in Britain. The area of National Trust land around the Pepper Pot is a walker's and birdwatcher’s paradise, as the birds can be observed at eye level. Outstanding sunsets looking towards The Needles are quite a sight. Nearby you'll discover some of the island’s best sandy beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing and of course fossil collecting, where you might even discover the odd dinosaur footprint or two. Close by is Blackgang Chine, the island's premier family attraction and to the north is Osborne House, the former royal residence of Queen Victoria. Experience royal family life as you tour the nursery and private rooms of Victoria and Albert and their children. Wonder at the magnificence of the Royal Apartments including the sumptuous drawing and dining rooms, and the Indian-inspired Dubar Room. Stunning grounds looking out onto The Solent can be explored via a horse-drawn carriage or on foot.
